Book #280

Tegumentum Cinereum

Another book for November, the tegumentum cinereum, which is one of the bindings examined by Monica Langwe Berg in her book Limp Bindings from Tallinn. Rather than recycling a parchment document for the cover like the original, I have used a woodblock letterpress collage that I made for the cover. Red stitching and red leather straps. The extra blanket stitching on the spine stitches is an attractive feature.

Book #279


I could not allow myself to skip an entire month! So, today I tried another one of Smith's three-section sewings. As with many of my previous examples of three-section sewings, I have tripled it to make a book with nine sections.
